Rob,

I'll show the students some past Gadget Freak videos to pique their interest for submission. Again, a nice way to gain notoriety and a stipend for your project contribution to the magazine. Thanks!

Thanks MrDon. We're very interested in seeing your Gadget Freak entries. Send along an email to me and I'll send the Gadget Freak instructions: rob.spiegel@ubm.com

Also, we often run gadgets developed by student teams. Any chance your students could contribute?

Rob,

What a great suggestion/offer for the students. Nice way to promote skills and receive a monetary payment as well. I have a couple of Gadget Freak projects I need to submit as well when my schedule settles down with writing 2 books, teaching 5 electrical engineering tech classes, and developing/teaching Raspberry Pi courses for MakerMedia via Udemy.

Rob, I agree what a great show. I've shown Ben Heck videos to my ITT Tech Electrical Engineering Tech students to motivate and inspire them to create cool and awesome Capstone Projects. It's amazing how he's able to build these projects without having a engineering background. The desire to learn and try new things goes along way!

What a great idea for a show. And what an interesting sponsor in Element 14. And what a great appearance at DESIGN West. And it all has a sturdy viewership. Terrific news all around.
